Thank you for your response. My data is in -wide- format. In order to use -ologit- or -gllamm-, does my data necessarily need to be in -long- format? I am guessing that either I need to or I have set up -ologit- and -gologit- incorrectly since the coefficient and p-value I get are quite different. Looking at the table it appears there isn't a difference between the two time points and the results I get from your programming supports this. --- In statalist@yahoogroups.com, Joseph Coveney <jcoveney@b...> wrote: > Joseph Wagner wrote > > I need to do a comparison between two ordinal measures, one at baseline > (hlths) and the other, repeated at followup(f6hlths).
